Notes

"The offspring of Englishmen born abroad, even though of English descent, were not citizens and had to undergo naturalization if they intended to acquire realty and transmit it to their heirs....Children of aliens born in the colonies were still aliens. That situation changed in 1700 during the reign of William III, when legislation allowed natural-born subjects the right to inherit from alien parents or more remote ancestors. Accordingly, there was no longer a distinction between an Englishman and a colonial in the matter of inheritance." -- P. ix.

Denizations were granted by the king and naturalizations were granted by Parliment.

About this record

This screen shows the complete catalog entry of the title you selected.

The Film/Digital Notes contain a description of the microfilm or microfiche numbers. Some family history centers and libraries maintain collections of previously loaned microfilms or microfiche. A camera icon indicates items that are digitally available online.

Generally, catalog entries are written in the same language as the original record they describe.

Reasons why microfilms may not yet be available digitally on FamilySearch.org include:

  • The microfilm may be scheduled for future scanning.
  • The microfilm may have been scanned, but have a contractual, data privacy, or other restriction preventing access. FamilySearch makes every effort to enable access dependent on decisions of record custodians and applicable laws.
